Top 10 Breakups of Bollywood

Breakups and patch ups are not new in Bollywood, from Guru Dutt to Ranbir Kapoor and from Wahida Rehman to Kareena. It is general perception that bollywood is not good at maintaining long term relationships. Age, religion and status are not a concern in Indian film industry to build a relation, still bollywood encounter many breakups.

Bollywood celebs are no less than their Hollywood counterparts when it comes to relationships. From the likes of Raj Kapoor to the latest John Abraham, none of them could successfully retain their much talked about romance. We cast a glance down memory lane and bring out the Top 10 break-ups of the decade.

Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai
Theirs was a kind of story that makes fairy tales, only that it didn't have a happy ending. Salman and Ash's relationship had a turbulent end with the actress accusing Salman of physically and mentally harassing her. After the much controversial break-up, the two have moved on to other alternatives.

2. Shahid Kapur and Kareena Kapoor
The pair were inseparable since they started seeing each other. However, their love could not stand the test of time and after 3 years of dating Kareena decided to move on with the suave Saif Ali Khan. Shahid Kapoor was left heart broken at the failed relationship while Kareena happily carried on with her new love life.

Karisma Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan
Karisma Kapoor was introduced as the would-be Bachchan bahu on the occasion of Sr. Bachchan's 60th birthday. In a sudden turn of events, their engagement was called off with most of the blame being put on Mommy Bachchan. Karisma hastily got married to industrialist Sanjay Kapoor while Abhishek is today happily married to Aishwarya Rai.

4. Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh
Saif defied all norms when he got married to Amrita Singh who was 12 years his senior. Sadly Saif could not hold on to his commitment and the couple filed for divorce in 2004. After the divorce Saif went on to date a string of women before settling for Kareena Kapoor.

5. Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone
Who would wonder what happened after Deepika's rant on the talk show 'Koffee With Karan'. Ranbir's infidelity, which did not go down well with Deepika, brought the curtains down on their glamorous pairing. Though Deepika has moved on with Siddharth Mallya, she still retains her 'RK' tattoo on her nape.

6. Aamir Khan and Reena Dutta
The original chocolate boy got married to his childhood sweetheart in the early years of his career. Despite his super success, Aamir stood by his marriage for 15 long years. The couple divorced in 2002 and Aamir married the much younger Kiran Rao in 2005.

7. Preity Zinta and Ness Wadia
Preity and Ness were very much a couple in love which was up for everyone to see. They seemed perfectly in sync with each other until they called off their relationship. No one knows why one of the most good looking couples on the list parted ways but what we do know is that it was heart -breaking to see them take such a step.
8. Lara Dutta and Kelly Dorjee
This was another beautiful relationship that failed the test of time. Lara and Kelly were always very vocal about their love for each other. The starry romance saw a bitter end with Kelly holding his best friend Dino Morea responsible for the split. The end was controversial but the two must have found peace now as Lara is happily married to Mahesh Bhupathi.

9. Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan
Salman Khan brought his blue-eyed girl into the industry and made sure he did everything in his power to make her an established star. Katrina too remained loyal to him until Ranbir Kapoor came and knocked her off his charm. According to reports, the two still wish each other well in life irrespective of choosing to go in different directions.
10. Bipasha Basu and John Abraham
This is probably the biggest split of recent times. After 10 years of being together, the duo have called it quits. Though neither of the two have accepted their break-up publicly, they have been dropping hints suggesting their single status. If reports are to be believed, the couple split due to disagreement over marriage. Well, we just hope that the two get back together as the 'moving on' bug has not seemed to catch on with them.

Top 10 Best Upcoming Cell Phones

Sure, you want a new phone right now, but carriers and manufacturers have promised some truly spectacular, knock-your-socks-off phones coming to U.S. shelves between now and June. With 4G right around the corner and mobile hardware and software getting better and better, you should take a look at what’s coming down the pike in the next couple of months before you buy.

We’ve come up with this list of the most exciting phones that you’ll be able to buy in the coming months. Check out pictures of these amazing handsets.

10. Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc (AT&T?)

Sony Ericsson’s big comeback could come from this Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" phone with a razor-sharp screen, spectacular camera, and the ability to be manipulated by your TV’s remote control. While the company told us it wants to sell this phone here in the U.S, we’ve put it in last place on this list because Sony Ericsson has a lousy track record of getting its phones picked up by U.S. carriers. If it does appear, the Xperia Arc will most likely show up on AT&T.
Also notable: Sony Ericsson is expected to debut a "PlayStation phone" next month, though we don’t know whether that’s ever coming to the U.S.

 9. HTC 7 Pro (Sprint)

Windows Phone 7 will debut on Sprint very, very soon with this big, sliding-QWERTY-keyboard model. Like many other Windows Phone 7 devices, the 7 Pro has a 1GHz processor and a 5-megapixel camera. The form factor is the selling point here, with a tilting screen that makes it look like a little laptop.

8. LG Revolution (Verizon Wireless)

Verizon debuted four new LTE, Android-based phones at CES this year. The LG Revolution’s key features include 1080p HD video capture and the ability to organize your Android apps into folders, preventing your app tray from getting much too long.

7. Samsung Galaxy S 4G (T-Mobile)

T-Mobile’s Editors’ Choice-winning Samsung Vibrant is getting a faster cousin with the introduction of the Galaxy S 4G, which T-Mobile pre-announced on January 20. We don’t know much about the new generation Galaxy S, although we’re hoping T-Mobile’s phone is the same as the dual-core Galaxy S lineup that Samsung is promising.

6. Samsung Infuse 4G (AT&T)

Super-thin, with a super-huge, Super AMOLED Plus screen, the Samsung Infuse will give you a truly cinematic Android experience. The 4.5-inch display carries the same 800-by-480 resolution as most other smart phones, but Samsung says Super AMOLED Plus will improve its colors. The Infuse will be one of the first phones to run on AT&T’s fast HSPA+ network.

5. HTC Thunderbolt (Verizon Wireless)

HTC is beloved for giving a bit more style and finish to its Android phones than some other manufacturers, and the 4G HTC Thunderbolt comes with the company’s award-winning Sense UI overlay. It also has an 8-megapixel camera and an HD video recorder, which may make this an excellent 4G phone for YouTube devotees.

4. T-Mobile Sidekick 4G

The T-Mobile Sidekick is a cult device with an intensely faithful following. After Sidekick-maker Danger was bought by Microsoft, fans thought they’d never see a new model. T-Mobile recently said the Sidekick is coming back as a 4G HSPA+ Android phone, but didn’t give many details. This image seems to hint that it will eschew a swiveling screen for a slider design.

3. Motorola Droid Bionic (Verizon Wireless)

The dual-core, NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor in the Motorola Droid Bionic means this 4G LTE phone will be up to twice as fast as other top smartphones. I’ve seen the Tegra difference when playing games, and it means sharper backgrounds, better shadows, and more enemies to fight. The Droid Bionic may very well be Verizon’s power leader when it launches.

2. Motorola Atrix (AT&T)

The most interesting phone I saw at CES and the one I’m personally waiting most anxiously for, the Motorola Atrix is an Android phone that turns into a Linux-powered, desktop or laptop PC when it’s popped into the appropriate dock. Could this replace a tablet, a netbook, or a home media center? I really want to find out.

1. Apple iPhone 5

Sorry folks, we couldn’t ignore the next-gen phone. Nobody knows anything reliable about the upcoming iPhone, although noisy blog speculation is already in full force. We don’t know if it will be called iPhone 5, iPhone 4G, or something else. But we’re pretty sure it’s coming in June or July—iPhones always do. Surely Apple will have plenty of surprises for us, and it’s likely that a new iPhone will come with industry-leading features.

Cricket : Passion that binds

A common bond that can unite many people even with diverse views and beliefs is a passion for the game of cricket. In many countries like India, the game is more of a religion with the players assuming the role of idols. The outcome of a match can drastically turn around the way the fans view the cricketers, a win placing them on the pedestals while a loss can instigate extreme anger and disappointment in the players. Another important behavior of the fans is their immense involvement in the game and the players and often the bond exists much beyond the field. A player's personal life, performance on the field, statistics and records all matter significantly to an individual who has tremendous interest in the game.
Cricket has gone much beyond being just a gentleman's game and has achieved much fan following and popularity around the world. So if cricket is your religion and the players are your idols then you are not alone, there are millions of fans across the world who shares your passion for the game in equal measure.
